His hands shook. He had not been nervous until this very moment. His heart was beating faster and faster as the anticipation grew. He waited to see his bride for the first time for their Navy and Gray Wedding at The Cardinal Room. He had just seen her the day before. They were both so excited. And now, the excitement seemed to overwhelm him. He stood on the lawn as his family watched from the stairway. He could hear her footsteps behind him. She was getting closer. His body became tense. He was so ready to turn around. He was so ready to see his bride, his best friend. They had waited 7 years for this moment…
These are the moments we live for. The moments when our lives change forever. And for Shelby and Jared, it was 7 years in the making. They had become best friends in their high school theatre class. They had grown closer together and loved each other relentlessly over
the years. And through it all, they had continued to laugh together. This laughter and joy kept their love fresh, new, and exciting. It refined and strengthened their friendship into the relationship that would lead them to this marriage. [/av_one_half]
“And through it all, they had continued to laugh together.”
Jared and Shelby, the joy that emanated from your wedding was beautiful and infectious. You were both wore such ecstatic and so excited the entirety of the day. I love that I was able to capture that for you. And, more importantly, I love you two. Ever since our first consultation, I have felt a connection with the two of you. I could see your adoration for each other, even from the beginning. And this view only grew in strength as we shot your engagement session
and got to know one another. I have no doubts about your marriage. I know that your joy and friendship will continue to grow. It will keep you close as you continue through life as husband and wife. I am so happy for the two of you. And I am so thankful that I was able to witness your wedding day.
